Had him for abnormal. I only went to class a handful of times and barely read the book, but ended up with an A. He curves everything by a lot. Definitely an easy A but I would avoid going to the lectures because they are so ridiculously boring. I thought this would be an interesting class but I was wrong!

If you want an A in Abnormal, follow these tips. Half of the questions on Exam #3 are from his lectures. Study the document lectures 1-9 on his website or these questions will seem foreign to you. If you want extra credit, participate in studies on sona systems. He will double the credits you earn and add them to your total points.

It's a privilege to take him. Had him for Abnormal Psych and loved it which made me want to take him for Personality (any class would do really). As much as I enjoy listening to him in the lecture setting, this time around I didn't find him to be particularly clear. My notes from class were a mess and not of much use for studying prior to exams.

AMAZING TEACHER AND ADVISER! You cant fail his Abnormal Psyc class. He grades all of the tests then marks the highest grade an an A and the lowest grade as a C and all you need is a C to pass the class. It dont mater if the highest grade on a test was a 65 or a 95 it will get an A. It dont mater if the lowest grade was a 35 or a 55 it will get a C.

I have had him for both Stats and Personality. Stats he is AMAZING, greatest professor, very clear, good teacher, got an A. Personality he can get a little boring and start rambeling, but he is very funny, smart and nice if you pay attention. Hands down my favorite professor at Stockton, take him!!

Read the book, study and you will be fine. Attendance not mandatory but the material covered is so interesting you will NOT want to miss a class. Very knowledgeable professor. Definitely recommend to take Abnormal Psychology with Dr. Lester plus great sense of humor.

Those who said his classes are hard obviously just don't want to do the work. Show up, take notes and ask questions, read the books and take the exams. He even gives reviews. Put in the work and you'll get the grade you deserve. He's a smart and funny guy.

He is a great guy. So smart and passionate about what he teaches, and I love that he shares his current research with his classes. Yeah he talks about himself and his life a lot but most of the time it is because he is making examples for the material. Wish I could take another class with him, already took them all! It's easy if you're not lazy.

easy professor. no need to go to class, but some lectures are quite interesting. if you read the textbook chapters before the test and do the review quiz at the end you will get an a on every test. adorable man, adorable accent. if you are taking this class, choose this professor.

I took Abnormal, Personality and Stats with Professor Lester and he is amazing! Stats sucks.. it does but even if your bombing he will help you get through it. Attendance is not required in any of his classes. He is a better Psych professor than a stats professor but only because he moves relatively quickly when he teaches. His accent is adorable!

He's a great professor, I don't know why people are complaining about his exams. They are easy if you actually read your textbook… The students that fail obviously didn't study.. Lectures are interesting and exams questions are fair. It's only difficult if you don't READ and UNDERSTAND the materials in the book!! But overall, great professor

cool class, tests can be quite difficult if you dont read the book or go over the powerpoints. i dont particularly find the powerpoint to be that clear, but maybe its me. cool guy though and very funny and interesting. i could do without the curved grading system, its great cause you wont fail but you dont know where you stand during the class

Awesome professor! Lectures are really interesting. Tests are based off of textbook rather than his lectures so make sure you read the book. If you read the chapters the class should be an easy A. Really cool and interesting guy, would highly recommend!!

prof lester is such a great guy ! His way of teaching is so interesting. He has the greatest accent and has so many personal examples that relate so well to the chapters that really help you grasp the concepts. No attendence. Tests are curved which is good and he goes over definitions the class before the test so try to memorize !

I have successfully completed two stats classes in the past and now this is my third and the one I am enjoying the most. He goes very slow and will do countless examples for you and makes sure you understand. Not an easy A but if you work at it you will do well. Have to go to class or you will be lost. In love with his accent. Hes a cutie too.

Read the book and take the three exams. His lectures are actually quite interesting but have little to do with exams. You have to read the book but it is interesting especially if you are a psychology major. Curves the tests. Not really an easy 'A' because you do have to do the work of reading a good number of chapters. Really good guy.
